However ... through all of this stress .. Mr.WiseA** has rescued me for fleeting moments .. brought back happy memories of my childhood and how very fortunate I was to live in a semi isolated area (didn't seem that way at the time, as all kids think) .. the forest and the sea coast were my saving grace in extremely difficult circumstances.
Mr. WiseA** has taken extraordinary pictures of an icy creek with amazing ice waves .. and of mossy rocks (boulders?) that I so wished I could keep in my garden ..
He has a natural sense of what true beauty is but tempers it with a wicked sense of humour and wit to disguise that sensitive side of himself .. don't worry Mr. A. I won't tell too many people ... although I do feel a need for a group hug .. I'll settle myself with hugging Sophie .. Emma is napping : )
So .. all that squishy talk and what the heck am I posting about ?
MOSS !!! ... I know some gardeners would run screaming seeing that I am encouraging moss between my ever so boring patio bricks .. but people, it is BORING and it needs some nature hugs (I'm in a hugging mood today .. had some chocolate .. that time of the month ? .. next I will be ready to ride my broom ? ) .. I want to lift random bricks and plant low hardy plants .. herbs .. "stepables" is another description .. I want life between these hard surfaces in other words !! So be it !
Isn't it rather "artsy" to have a folded frozen leaf .. embedded like this ? .. I know .. all of us "Northerners" have TONS of said art waiting to be released .. raked up and composted or other wise gotten rid of .. but a picture of a single one is rather attractive ? oui ?? Do visit the link to Mr. WiseA** (moss post) .. that is my pet name for him .. other wise known as "Wiseacre" .. he is an amazing fellow : ) Cindee at Cindees Garden also posted on moss today .. how funny is that ?
